To Deseed and juice a pomegranate can seem like a daunting task, but I am here to let you know how to turn those beautiful jewels into beautiful juice! It’s rather simple actually and only requires a bowl, water, and something to muddle with. Seriously. If this was click bait, the title would read “You have been juicing pomegranates all wrong,” but we don’t do that around here, we get right to the pint. Here’s how to easily deseed and juice a pomegranate!
• large bowl
Fill a large bowl 3/4 with water. Cut a pomegranate into quarters. In the bowl of water, start separating the seeds, I mean jewels, from the pith. The seeds will sink and the pith floats! This allows you to easily skim and discard the white part and leaves you with the tasty seeds after straining the water.
For juice: Muddle the pomegranate and strain the juice (I find 1 large pomegranate yields a few ounces) into a jar and use with in a day or so for best flavor.
You can also blend the seeds in blender for a few pulses and strain out the solids. Et voilà, you have fresh, delicious pomegranate juice to enjoy in desserts, food and of course cocktails!
